John Gotti

John Joseph Gotti, Jr. (October 27, 1940 – June 10, 2002), commonly known by the media as "The Dapper Don" and "The Teflon Don", was the boss of the Gambino crime family, one of the Five Families in New York City after the murder of his former boss Paul Castellano. He became widely known for his outspoken personality and flamboyant style that eventually caused his own downfall. In 1992, Gotti was convicted of racketeering, 13 murders, obstruction of justice, hijacking, conspiracy to commit murder, illegal gambling, extortion, tax evasion and loansharking among others largely helped by testimony of his Underboss Salvatore Gravano, and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, where he would eventually die in 2002.
